Darius Jackson recently released audio of a conversation between him, Keke Palmer, and her mother, Sharon Palmer where Sharon made comments about Usher. Palmer said that the Good Kisser singer was gay. Now she's clearing up those remarks, stating that she was just trying to protect her daughter.
In the intense conversation, Palmer made many harsh comments about Jackson because of his alleged harassment towards her daughter. At one point, she referenced the incident of Keke and Usher at his Las Vegas residency, which is what brought the couple's issues to the public eye.
“Usher is gay!” she said in the audio. “You and your stupid-ass family, y’all don’t even understand business. Usher’s gay, guys.”
The audio has then made its way around social media, making Usher's sexuality a spectacle. Now, Palmer says it was a lie.
“The lie I told about Usher was to get Darius to stop abusing my daughter on account of his jealousy,” she wrote in a comment under an Instagram post about the audio. “So I said he didn’t like women for her SAFETY."
“Everything else I meant with my chest and didn’t expect anyone to hear it because recording me is illegal. I guess he is okay with jail but I knew that when he put his hands on my daughter. He is still abusing her in all of this, trying to paint himself as a victim. Textbook behavior," she said.
Keke Palmer has recently been granted full custody and a temporary restraining order against Darius Jackson. The two share an eight-month-old son. The Nope star has come forward about the abuse she has endured from Jackson during their two-year relationship. A hearing to determine whether the restraining order will become permanent is scheduled for early December.
